Teaching Language Through the Lens of Social Justice

Teaching for and about social justice positively influences all students, yet social justice education can be challenging to integrate into the language classroom. In the first part of this institute, participants will examine the principles of social justice education and identify ways that these principles can support our standards, objectives, and targeted skills in contemporary foreign language education. This discussion and reflection will help teachers to identify their own interests and strengths in becoming language educators for social justice. In the second part of the institute, the participants will build on this foundation to adapt, develop, and create learning opportunities for their foreign language students. A collaborative, creative set of experiences will help participants go from big ideas to activities and assessments for their classroom, all while teaching for and about social justice.
